A Clocktower on Your Wrist

Wayback Machine

The industrial style aesthetic of Jumping Hour Watch was determined by its physical processes alone. The goal was to make clear the jumping hours mechanism in a multilayered case that gives viewers a window into the timepiece’s complex inner workings. Details of the mechanism can be seen through glass insets on the sides of the multi-level casing. The resulting aesthetic is similar to an up-close, inside view of an elegant clocktower.

However, time is displayed not with hands, but with rotating discs. The outer disc (the jumping hour) made as a grid covering 11 sectors and leaving one sector opened and showing number of the current hour. Two inner discs display minutes and seconds respectively, using small rotating gears which create a beautiful motion effect.

Designers: Anna Samoylova & Alexey Boguslavskiy
